People most commonly get TBIs from a fall, firearm-related injury, motor vehicle crash, or an assault

Research shows that:

  • Falls lead to nearly half of the TBI-related hospitalizations
  • Motor vehicle crashes and assaults are other common ways a person may get a TBI

For more detailed information on the leading ways, people get TBIs and the groups of people most likely to get a TBI, check out CDC’s TBI data reports.

TBIs may be missed in older adults

Older adults are more likely to be hospitalized and die from a TBI compared to all other age groups.11 Still, TBIs may be missed or misdiagnosed in older adults because symptoms of TBI overlap with other medical conditions that are common among older adults, such as dementia.

Healthcare providers should check for signs and symptoms of TBI if an older adult has:

  • Fallen or has a fall-related injury, such as a hip fracture
  • Been in a car crash
